The blog, the poetry, the stories: most days it's a scattered heap of rumpled grace, but if you're looking for storytelling, something to read, or maybe just an honest place to sit and rest a spell, you're always welcome here.
To learn more about my books and writing, you can explore this blog.
If you're a fellow wordsmith or artist in need of editing or a coffee house buddy go ahead and contact me or my friends over at RAD Writing. Additionally, you can head over to MJ's Mountain on Facebook.
I'm all about horses, hot tea, and October in the mountains. Soli Deo Gloria!
What is Elanor and Evermind?
Storytellers and storylovers, this blog was created to offer poetry, prose, and non-fiction devotionals specifically with fellow writers and artists in mind. For all who crave the music of the written word, may this encourage as well as challenge and maybe bring a smile or two. You'll also find information about ongoing projects and more about my published works.
